USA v Germany Odds & Betting Tips – World Cup 2014 Betting
USA v Germany Betting Preview – World Cup 2014
This is a clash between the top two in Group G and at the end of the day a draw would suit both sides perfectly. The USA are in a little more danger though should there be a winner in the Portugal v Ghana match, because the USA will have to protect their positive goal difference in the group. So the USA really need to keep things tight in this one.
However, there has never been a draw between the two sides from nine previous meetings. Of those nine game played between the USA and Germany, the Europeans have taken six wins. They have met in the World Cup before twice, and the USA have lost both of those matches to nil. The USA can look back to the most recent meeting between the two sides though, a friendly in June of last year, a game which they won 4-3 and Clint Dempsey netted a brace in the game. Dempsey (three goals in this last four appearances) has been looking sharp and focused and is a 3/1 shot in the anytime goalscorer market against Germany, which are pretty long odds.
The USA have a lot of positives running in them, galavanting forward and they are a brave side, but they do lack quality and concentration at the back which could hurt them. They have conceded twelve goals in their last four matches against Germany too. Still, the USA have scored in each of their last eight World Cup matches, so Both Teams To Score in this one looks a strong possibility. The USA have conceded in each of their last 15 World Cup matches against European opposition.
Germany will be looking to fill their boots, as they have scored in 19 of their 20 World Cup matches. They opened with a bang in destroying Portugal 4-0, but were then made to work hard by Ghana in their second group match, having to settle for a 2-2 draw in the end. Germany do have goals in them clearly, with Thomas Muller and Miroslav Klose even money favourites in the anytime goalscorer market here, but their defence does concede, shipping goals in three of their last four matches played. With the USA having scored exactly two goals in each of their last six games, this should be a high scoring game so go over 2.5 goals.
